Where ever they have room. Cedar Point used their water park's parking lot (Soak City), Indiana Beach used their parking lot, Magic Mountain seems to have lots behind the park where they put their track, Great America put there's in employee parking lots (I believe)...so basically anywhere where the park has a lot of room.

I don't think they "hide" the tracks. SFWoA just let the X-Flight track sit in the parking lot.

In 99' SFA "hid" S:ROS track beyond Joker's Jinx. The only way you could see it would be to fly over the park (which one enthusiast did) or from one of the inversions on Joker's Jinx.

PKI could hide whatever they wanted to back in the woods. Instead, they pile up the track (at least for reptar) in the parking lot. Easy to see from the xpressway

Parks generally don't hide it. They just put it where they have room.
But, wasn't Oblivion a really secret ride, up until it was about to open? So with that, how did they hide it?

I agree with the thought that it really isn't hidden (how on earth would you hide track for a 300+ foot tall coaster?) but for the northern parks, much of the track and larger construction pieces may not be on site until the park is closed for the season, or at least only open for weekends or whatever.

From what I've heard, they put walls around it while it was being constructed. Sounds far-fetched, but it doesn't really surprise me.

Actually, there was a MF track siting a few weeks before it's announcement. It arrived in I believe the early months of 1999.

They hide the track in the storage room where the spare ingredients for Lemon Chill are kept. How else would that Lemon Chill guy know so much...

According to the "official" count, next year's new coaster lineup will feature 17 Arrow 4-Ds, 21 TA2Ks, 34 B&M floorless's, 17 Intamin Gigas, 12 beemer flyers, and 247 CCIs. And oh yeah, CP will receive one of all of these.
